Weddings & Special Occasions
Down Farm Estate’s pastoral charm and inspiring landscapes offer the ideal setting for your country wedding or special occasion. Our Estate is set within 53 acres of Organic grasslands, meadows, woods and a fresh water lake in the idyllic and beautiful North Devon countryside.
We believe in hosting a select number of weddings and special occasions each year, guaranteeing exclusive use of the Estate for every event
At Down Farm, your guests will enjoy an occasion that feels uniquely homespun yet professionally executed. We can specialise in “Intimate” or “Runaway” weddings for just a bride and groom with up to 4 guests in our Lake House or larger groups in The Ole Barn, enabling you to create a unique, boutique style occasion tailor made to you.
You may choose from multiple venues for the various events of your day, allowing you to make the most of your time spent on the Estate. We have many ceremony and cocktail hour site options, including The Lawn, The Lake House, with stunning views of the lake, and the Valley High, where fresh air and majestic sky views stretch on for miles.
Our Lake House reflects the Estate’s balance of simplicity and sophistication, constructed from reclaimed wood with rustic glass doors. There is ample space for larger receptions in the Ole Barn, accommodating up to 40 people.
You can arrange for an Independent Celebrant who can incorporate your personal wishes, beliefs and suggestion into the ceremony. Sample Menus, and a large portfolio of recommended suppliers, highly knowledgeable professionals and additional accommodation providers, all local to the area, are also at your service.

"Down Farm was the most perfect setting for our weekend long wedding party. We felt like we were staying in a 5 star hotel while at the same time, the warm informal atmosphere made it like a home from home. Everyone loved Down Farms facilities including the fresh water lake, (for early morning hangovers.) and the outdoor lawn cinema. Our wedding day was created especially for us, by us; anyone that chooses to have their wedding at Down Farm will get a day that is truly personal to them. That's why this place is so special, not only does it have the beautiful exterior and is impeccably kitted out, but the heart and soul of the people and place is what makes it truly one of a kind"
Mr & Mrs Head, April
